Adding Subversion Source Control Profiles

To create a Subversion source control profile:

  1. In the menu, click Project:<Project Name> > Project Settings .
  2. Click the Source Control tab. The Source Control page opens, listing all of the source control profiles that have been created for the system.
  3. Click New Profile to open the New Source Control Profile dialog box.
  4. Type a Name for the new profile. This is the name that is displayed in lists where the profiles are available for selection.
  5. Choose Subversion from the Source control system list box.
  6. Type the URL of the Subversion Repository you want to access.
    If you do not know the URL of the repository, consult your Subversion administrator.
    Note: To use SSH, add ssh to the URL, for example svn+ssh://<hostname>:<port>.
  7. Type a valid Username and Password. These credentials will be used to access your repository.
  8. Type a valid SSH username and SSH password or SSH keyfile. These credentials are used to access the SSH server. The password overrides the keyfile, so if you only have a keyfile, leave the SSH password field empty. If you use a keyfile, the path to the keyfile must be valid on every execution server that uses the source control profile.
  9. Optional: Type the Common working folder to which the Silk Central execution server should copy the source files. The working folder must be a local path. For example, C:\TempSources\.
    Warning: It is recommended to leave this field empty and let Silk Central use a temporary working folder instead. Specifying a static working folder can lead to unexpected results when running parallel executions. The temporary location can be queried from the predefined parameter #sctm_source_root_dir.
  10. Type the Project path you want this profile to use. Click Browse to display the Select Project Path dialog box. The Select Project Path dialog box opens. Select the desired project path in the tree view and click OK. Leaving this field empty sets the project path to the root directory.
  11. Click OK.

    Silk Central attempts a trial connection to the external system using the information you have provided.

    Note: If an error occurs, please review the information that you have supplied, or consult your administrator.

If the trial connection is successful, you are returned to the Source Control page.
